To start off this blog, Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Andrew Decker and I am currently a freshman at Ohio University as of March 3rd, 2014. I am interested in designing sound and working with recording sound effects, voice acting and music for animations and video games. Now that I have my own website, I will start keeping it filled with all of the projects I have been working on. Currently this includes my very first project: Making audio files for the Ohio University Game Developers Association.
The Ohio University Game Developers Association has started our first project of the semester by helping all of us develop our first, very simple games. Since I was the only one there who wanted to specialize in audio for games, I took on all of the different projects to make sound effects as well as background music to accompany them.The five projects include the games Heads Need Hats, Pachinko, Hexagon Ping Pong, Assassination, and Super Sloth.
The first of these titles to be released will be Super Sloth on the app store in just a few days! Super sloth is a simple platforming game where you play as the super sloth. The music I designed for it was made to keep the audience in a good place. It was written with the feel of skipping along in a cartoon-like world. The sound effects for Super Sloth were designed online with the assistance of an 8 bit sound design website. The website is bfxr and is linked here. After I created the sound files with this website, I brought them into the game through Unity Game Developing software.
